A Challenge for First-Time Slicers


Calling all new Slice of Life writers!

We are nearly at the end of the 11th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge.  As a new member of this community, we hope you have found your writing groove.  We hope you are living like a writer and finding the stories that exist in your day-to-day life.

This community needs two things: writers and readers. Both are equally important to this community. This challenge aims to recognize both. We are asking Slicers who are new to our community:  Who has encouraged you this month?  Who has left a comment on your blog that moved you?  Who has inspired you to keep writing?  Who has lifted you up as a writer?

First-time Slicers, please nominate a fellow Slicer to be your co-winner in this final challenge. Leave a comment on this post by Sunday, March 25 at 11:59 p.m. Tell us which Slicer has inspired you the most through the comments s/he has left on your blog.  Both you and the person you nominate will win a copy of  Clare Landrigan and Tammy Mulligan’s  new book, It’s All About the Books and an individual Skype session or one together, depending on your preference.

  • The person who you mention by leaving a comment on this post must also be a Slice of Life Story Challenge participant (i.e., they must be slicing daily and have registered using the participant information form).
  • While the other co-authors and I certainly hope we have inspired you and made you feel welcome, we never enter ourselves into prize drawings.  Therefore, please do not mention any of us (i.e., myself, Beth, Betsy, Kathleen, Lanny, Deb, or Stacey) when you leave a comment on this post.
  • Please do not leave the link to your Slice of Life Story as a comment on this post.

  • The winner will be chosen by a random number generator. The name of the winning pair will be announced by Tuesday, March 27 at the bottom of this post.

Thank you to Clare and Tammy, authors of It’s All About the Books, for the generous prize!

The winners of this prize are Tamara Jaimes and Carol Wilcox. Tamara gave a special thanks to Elisabeth Ellington, Girlgriot, and Melanie Meehan for their encouragement. However,  her official nomination went to Carol “who has inspired me with her writing for many years. What an unexpected surprise to have her kind and insightful responses to my posts during my first year!”

Congratulations the two of them, and a huge thank you to Clare Landrigan and Tammy Mulligan for donating their book and their time!
